My first run through:

9 seeds - Arkansas, Kent St, Oregon

10 seeds - South Alabama, Davidson, St Mary's

11 seeds - Kansas St, Baylor

12 seeds - Western Kentucky

Kansas St is the only seed higher than 5 i have reaching the sweet 16.

I have K-State and South Alabama in the sweet 16. Those are my only double digit seeds.

I have USC and Butler in the sweet 16...However, if K ST and SA win against those teams, i agree they will be in sweet 16.

No respect for Wisconsin or Tennessee.

I think Stanford is overrated, and at first I was inclined to show some bias and go with Cornell. But I couldn't get around the fact that I watched two Stanford/UCLA games, and the Lopez twins could probably beat the whole Cornell roster by themselves. Cornell's guards are probably comparable or better than Stanford's though.

Yeah like I said I haven't had as much chance to do my research as I normally do (tracking down the tennis coach for interviews will do that ;)), so I'm basing this almost solely on what I know of Cornell, since I don't think I've seen Stanford play at all this year. That one in particular is likely to change as I get home tonight and go through the USA Torday/NY Times/Baltimore Sun/Washington Post capsules like I do every year (I find those four to be easy to navigate since they're made for more casual fans, yet often there will be a tidbit or two in there that affects my decisions).

I'm with you on Wisconsin and Tennessee, also Memphis, I have Mississippi State taking them out in round 2.

John Calipari will never win a big game..I still can't figure out how he outcoached Big John in the '96 Elite Eight.

Siena over Vanderbilt.

Siena over Vanderbilt.

Siena over Vanderbilt.

I saw Siena live this year (when JMU beat them, yes, I know, not a ringing endorsement) and they are really good.

Hasbrouck and Ubiles are a really good backcourt.

Book it. Siena over Vanderbilt.

Actually, JMU beat Siena. So it's even worse for them.

That backcourt is good though.

They are beating Vandy.

And we aren't talking about the Hoos bean. Not until November.

No Hoos, sorry. At least they're still alive in the CBI!!!

The UMBC over GTown pick is interesting...Obviously, there is a slim chance of that happening and maybe Tank would have had GTown going out in the second round anyway, so he figures what the hell.

However, if GTown has a lot of guys from the BMore/DC area( i am not sure if they do or not), you would figure some of the guys on UMBC would have played against them in the past...So they shouldn't be that intimidated by them.

They can't control Hibbert but Hibbert plays very sloppy sometimes and if they take it to him and get him in foul trouble, you never know.

Exactly. I was taking Davidson into the sweet 16 regardless and I really think UMBC has a chance, however slight. It might be smarter to just play it safe and have Georgetown win that game, but I'm going for it anyway.

    • Sad as it is to say, Bud was way better.
    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
    • Every time I hear Crab cakes I think about Koco's Pub. Really miss those.
